Home Odyssey
exhibition together with Antti Kukkonen

Yö gallery, Helsinki

«How do I see my relation to our teddy bears? Of essence is love. Without love, a teddy bear is only a thing, material substance. Following philosopher Max Scheler, I could state the following: With the power of love, they exemplify ever higher values, and it is us who by loving our animal friends, partake also in these higher values. In a sense our animal friends show us what love can achieve, when we also see how for others our loved ones are only stuffed things. When we compare these two attitudes, we understand a great deal on love.»
